Head of the EU delegation in Armenia, Traian Hristea, recently stated that there is no controversy for Armenia in its relations simultaneously with the EU and the Moscow led Eurasian Union. Armenia as a sovereign country has to decide itself which way to follow. The Eurasian Union eventually will start functioning from 2015, whereas the EU has been operating for 55 years now. According to the EU official, being a member of one organization does not contradict preserving good relations with another. Armenia could join the CIS free trade zone but in parallel it should negotiate on free trade with the EU as well.
